Old Mill Veterinary Hospital Services
As your Primary Care Veterinarian, we are proud to provide quality care with a professional, well educated team. We are able to offer a wide range of medical care services and are happy to answer any questions you have regarding your pet’s needs.
Wellness & Preventative Care
We strive to prevent illness whenever possible. The time and effort invested in Wellness programs has rewards for both pets and pet parents. Our Wellness programs are designed specifically for your pet and include: Comprehensive physical exam; core and lifestyle vaccinations; internal parasite testing; heartworm and flea control; spay and neuter packages; dental care and cleaning; and specialized blood tests for all life stages. We are also happy to share that we now offer Proheart 6, a single injection that provides 6 months of heartworm prevention. Read more about it HERE.
Microchips are a revolutionary tool utilized in identifying and recovering lost pets. We utilize HomeAgain microchips, one of the most respected names in the industry. The microchip is the size of a grain of rice and is implanted with a needle similar to a vaccination. If your pet is current on their annual exam, we can offer this as a technician appointment, or at their next scheduled appointment with a veterinarian. We can also provide this service during a surgical or dental procedure. Our Microchip charge also includes the initial registration at no additional cost to our clients.
Dental Care & Oral Surgery
Dental care is a must for your Pet! Clean teeth and a healthy mouth don’t just prevent bad breath – they ward off periodontal disease, which can lead to serious health problems for your pet. Old Mill Veterinary Hospital provides your pet with dental care, which requires general anesthesia and full mouth x-rays for complete oral evaluation. Routine cleaning and/or oral surgery (extractions, oral growth, etc) are then determined. Complicated cases, like root canals for example, may require referral to the local veterinary dentists.
When your pet is examined, the doctor checks for periodontal disease which can be graded from stages one to four. The first two stages are classified as gingivitis, the last two as periodontitis.
Gingivitis can usually be reversed by thorough teeth cleaning by a veterinarian while the dog or cat is anesthetized. If treated early, the gums can return to normal appearance and function. If untreated, periodontitis can result. Periodontal disease is the most common ailment of small animals and imperils your pet’s health and quality of life.
To prevent periodontal disease and gingivitis, your pet should undergo frequent dental cleanings. We offer cost saving rewards towards cleanings when done yearly.
Dental care doesn’t end at our hospital. A home dental care regimen, including regular brushing, can help prevent plaque and tartar buildup and fight periodontal disease. Our staff can show you how to brush your pet’s teeth at home and recommed oral rinses, treats and other products that promote good dental health. .
Domestic and International Travel
There are a lot of steps involved in traveling with your pet, whether just a few states or across the globe. Old Mill Veterinary Hospital has USDA accredited Veterinarians that can provide you with the information and required travel documentation to make your trip less stressful and safe for your pet.
Radiology (X-ray & Ultrasound) and Diagnostics
When your pet isn’t feeling their best, our experienced veterinarians and trained medical team have the most up-to-date diagnostic tools and equipment necessary. With our in-house diagnostics, including Digital X-ray, Ultrasound, and complete lab, our team is able to determine the cause of illness and create a treatment plan for your pet quickly when time matters most.
We offer a wide range of general and specialty surgeries. We provide pre-anesthetic labwork and pre-surgical exams to ensure the safety of your pet and create a tailored anesthetic protocol. Surgical services and facilities include a Board Certified Surgeon available for consultation as well as heated surgery tables that not only increase your pet’s comfort but provide a faster recovery. We utilize advanced sterilization techniques as well as ECG and oxygen saturation monitors that provide an essential level of safety for our patients. We are lucky to have a large team of 5 skilled and devoted Licensed Veterinary Technicians that act as your pet’s devoted nursing care before, during, and after surgical procedures.
Veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people do. We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is the essence of good patient care. We create individualized pain management protocols for each pet undergoing a dental or surgical procedure and can provide options for pets that may be experiencing chronic pain in their daily lives.
While all pets benefit from a balanced diet, some pets require prescription diets based on a particular medical condition. Our veterinarians and staff is available to help you choose the right diet for your pet to keep him or her happy, healthy, and active.
We are not only here for your pet’s medical well-being, but also for their behavioral needs as well. Our veterinarians and medical team are here to help rule out medical reasons and identify the causes of behavioral disorders such as separation anxiety, inappropriate elimination, or obsessive disorders and then develop a treatment regimen for your family. We do offer appointments for behavior consultations.
Hospice Care & Euthanasia Services
The human-animal bond is strong and we are dedicated to supporting that bond through you and your pet’s time together. Saying good-bye to a pet is painful and we are here to support you at every part of the process. We work with clients to ensure their pet’s comfort and dignity during this difficult time. Please call if you have any questions regarding these services.
Estimates and Payment Options
If at any time during your visit you have questions regarding your pet’s treatment plan and the related costs please do not hesitate to ask. Estimates for our services are always available and readily accessible. For patients our veterinarians have never examined, providing an accurate estimate may be challenging, but our staff are here to answer questions and provide a detailed description of the services we offer for our standard procedures. In order to create a personalized estimate for your pet and condition, we would typically suggest setting up an appointment with a veterinarian to determine the best course of action.
